Cavies & Cake
Welcome to our new centre, in the heart of Fakenham, Norfolk. Making the experience of our therapy guinea-pigs from Cuddly Cavies available to all members of the community not just people in residential settings. Whether you are a carer, have additional needs, lonely, old, young, or just fancy meeting friends and making new ones, then we look forward to welcoming you.
Consisting of five different rooms that currently hold up to 6 people and a fully enclosed peaceful courtyard garden.
Here we invite you to enjoy a cake and a cuppa whilst watching the antics of the therapy guinea-pigs relaxing and playing in their indoor enclosures.
All the enclosures are set around the rooms at heights to ensure that you can see them perfectly, when seated and relaxing.
Included in your booking is a handling session where we get the guinea-pigs out so you can hold, groom and give them treats, whilst getting to know them, with one of our experienced handlers.
Cavies & Cake was established to bring the therapies of Cuddly Cavies to the wider community.
As parents of children with additional needs and being autistic we know how isolating and hard daily life can be. It was important to us to provide a place for carers and the cared for as well as the general community so people could meet and make new friends. No one need feel excluded or lonely and we have many contact groups that we can point you in if you need a hand with something specific.
We are currently in discussions for working with specific groups and organisations, so do contact us if you think we can help with yours.
